Whose Blood is a moving, touching, thought-provoking piece of theatre' Theatre Review: Whose Blood @ The Old Operating Theatre | Londonist

Museum of London Cuts - cutting the Prehistoric and Roman Curators

The museum of London is proposing to cut (or not fill) 3 major curatorial posts in the prehistoric, roman and medieval aspects of the collection. The Museum has a collection of international importance and cutting the early departments of such a high proportion of its senior staff is a short sighted disaster.
